For some reason O'Dea has made the trip down to Foynes in Co. Limerick to view a "Beetle" moving an empty wagon which can only mean that a new piece of kit is being trialed? Foynes was always a small town well down the Shannon Estuary from Limerick City and the ships passed it by to get to the port in the city. This has all changed now and today Foynes is a fine deep water port taking ships that could never have navigated the winding estuary!
